A tranquil and cool escape. This is what campers and outdoor enthusiasts can expect from the top of Mt. Lemmon (Arizona).

“The cooler temperatures are better. It’s so hot in Tucson,” said Jude Tadeo.

The Tadeo Family stopped by Rose Canyon Campground on Memorial Day. The picturesque location is home to the single body of water that runs along the mountain.

According to Rose Canyon Campground Supervisor Shane Rechcygl, the lake is owned by the U.S. Forest Service for firefighting, but Fish and Game has it stocked, “You can fish it. You can hike around it.” 

All 73 of Rose Canyon’s campsites were filled throughout the holiday weekend.

“We started getting busy on Thursday afternoon. We’ve had a steady amount of traffic all weekend,” Rechcygl said.

Campers were instructed to observe strict guidelines due to the high fire risks.

“You can’t have any firewood. You can’t have an open fire at all. You can’t use any charcoal or any open flame style grill,” Rechcygl said.

Rechcygl added it is to ensure campers can stay safe to create good memories with friends and family.

As per the US Forest Service, Rose Canyon Campground features 73 campsites, half of which may be reserved. The campground has three RV loops. The campsites are spacious and spread out among stands of big ponderosa pine and clumps of Gambel oak in a cool forest setting. Each site has a picnic table, grill, firepit, and bear box.
